What a busy busy week. Spent Thursday night through Sunday in Tampa Bay with El Quante, Kristen, Cab Driver, Freak, Ceiks, Meghan, Dan, Yvonne, Uncle Fire, and Christy Mae. Good times for sure. The Red Sox took two out of three from the Devil Rays in Fenway South (aka Tropicana Field). I am taking credit for the second win because as soon as I turned my cap inside out Jason Varitek blasted the game tying home run to left field and the rally was on. Never feel silly wearing a rally cap when your team is behind in the 9th. Rally caps work, but you must trust the power and have faith. It was also fun seeing all the Boston fans completely take over a ball park. Poor Devil Ray fans don’t have a chance. Based on a crude estimate, I would say it was 4/1 sox to rays fans. Red Sox Nation is large and vocal.
I also have a new found respect for George Luke and all the time he spent training in Florida. Boy does the running stink. If you are not hanging out at the beach, pool, or sitting in an AC room or car, it can just be gross. 2 miles into the run everything you are wearing is just soaked with sweat. The only hills in the state are bridges, which are windy, boring, and long. If I was not a runner, it would be paradise.
That’s all I got.
